Every HMC has this function from as far back as I can remember.

Click on Service Management, then Manage Servicable Event Notification.

Put in your smtp server and its port (you can usually just check your
Outlook settings on your PC for this information if you don't have it), add
an email and select ALL Errors. Now, just hit the test button and you
should have a test email.

Do *all* HMC's have this feature? How would you determine so?

Or to use something like Nagios (open source and free) to send you
emails and texts about the status on *all* your systems.

At one of my customers we had set up the HMC for Service
notification, and one Saturday night around 7:00pm their computer room
up to 100 degrees (A/C died). The HMC sent us all an email, telling us
the Ambient temperature surrounding the FSP had gotten too high. I
the email on my phone, and called the customer who was just amazed that
knew his computer room had overheated and I was over 1000 miles away. He
sent someone to the office, and when they opened the door he said it was
like an oven inside.

Just another great reason to have an HMC.
